Windows Password Unlocker

Windows Password Unlocker I just completed using this tool on a “lost and found” laptop here at work. And Yes, it does work and has reset all of the passwords>

Windows Password Unlocker is professional Windows password reset tool for you to reset lost Windows domain password, administrator password or user password with ease. It provides you fast and secure solution to remove forgotten password of Windows 7/ XP/ Vista/ 2000/ 2003/ 2008 and allows you to log in the locked system easily by burning a bootable CD/DVD or USB flash drive.

And excellent “how to reset” tutorial is provided on line, showing how to complete this process, and what to expect. Great screen shots!
I asked the laptop to reset two passwords, a “guest” and Admin password. After restarting the computer, I was able to access the Control panel User Accounts change the information.

I would recommend this product, and the price is right!

note: free download did not reset passwords, you must buy it.

Alison Saylor’s technology class is using Google Apps for Education to allow her students to create online portfolios and complete projects online. Alison says “It’s a fun way to do it and they (the students) really get into it. They’re very engaged.” She is a computer and technology teacher at Everitt Middle School in Wheat Ridge Colorado, “I just talked to a kindergarten teacher yesterday who’s ready to get kids on Google Apps,” the district education-technology specialist said. “The demand is huge, and it seems to be meeting a need in this 21st-century learning environment.”
